To date, the world community recognizes the positive results of the work carried out for the development of this principle at new level under the wise leadership of the President of Turkmenistan in the epoch of might and happiness. The Turkmen leader said: ‘The health of people is the wealth of the country. Turkmenistan pays great attention to the development of mass physical education, the Olympic movement, and sports in the epoch of might and happiness. Our country has been upholding the principles of our people, such as the upbringing of physically and mentally healthy generations’.
These words is a wonderful fact of our life. It was a great pleasure and pride for the Turkmen people to be informed by representatives of the European Regional Office of the World Health Organization, who recently visited Turkmenistan and appreciated the work being done in the field of human health in our country. Foreign experts analysed the work carried out in the frameworks of the Saglyk State Programme developed by the Turkmen leader, primarily in the field of sanitation and disease prevention, laboratory diagnostics, clinical examination of patients, prevention and control and praised the efforts of Turkmenistan. This fact evidenced that the principle ‘the state is for the people!’ is successful. As is known, the mass physical education and sports are very important in protecting, strengthening people's health and promoting a healthy lifestyle in society. Thus, the concern and support provided by the state to the development of physical education and sports in our country and high-level sports is paramount under the leadership of the President of Turkmenistan. A number of programmes are successfully implemented in this sphere, and national legislation is also improved on a regular basis. Having reached the great achievements in many sports, the Turkmen leader finds time for physical education and sports despite the fact that he has a lot of important work to do. The great work of the President of Turkmenistan resulted in the fact that our country is considered a sports power in the world. Turkmenistan has held different regional, continental and world sporting events at the highest organizational level and has a great reputation of the country of health, inspiration and sports. We express sincere gratitude to the President of Turkmenistan, who has provided excellent conditions to enhance honour and prestige of our beloved Motherland.
